Latin Quarter - Long Pig

Lyrics

The cross of St. George
The crosses of Patrick and Andrew
Which corner is yours?
What long line of bull did they hand you?
Where every corner has an angle
From every angle hangs a web
But don't get dragged inside, yeah
Don't be sport for spiders
This is what the old sweat said
He said, they're gonna make you

King for day
Forgotten by morning
King for a day
Until the papers start yawning
Like the gulf that you just fell into
They won't hand you a single grain of sand
That you can cling to
King for a day - you king you

The cross of St. George
The crosses, the crescent, the eagle
It's all for the cause
Desperate to make it seem legal
Where every soldier is the lawyer
The witness, the jury, the judge and the priest
Camouflaged in a lynch-law suit
He's got an order here to execute
And Tommy Boy? Well he gets one day at least

King for day
Forgotten by morning
King for a day
Until the papers start yawning
Like the gulf that you just fell into
They won't hand you a single grain of sand
That you can cling to
King for a day - you king you

King for a day and what will he rule?
King for a day in the kingdom of the fool…
